I finished the Monkey socks. They are so soft and squishy, and I'm really pleased with them. I think though, that it might be time to stop knitting myself socks - I think I've got about 8 pairs of hand-knitted socks, which in California, is probably a lifetime supply.

The pattern is of course from Knitty its a surprisingly easy knit, the lace repeat was simple to memorise. The wool is Silkie from Socks that Rock, in the colour Bunny Foo Foo. The yarn is 81% merino: 19% silk, texture of the yarn is lovely, but they are unfortunately hand-wash only. I think this pattern would really show off best in a semi-solid, but my taste seems to be for very patterned sock yarn.
